NOTE FOR GRADUATE STUDENTS IN THE SOUTHWEST REGION ONLY: We encourage graduate students to submit abstracts in either the Presentation or Poster format. For graduate students early in your studies, poster presentations are excellent opportunities for you to gain valuable feedback and insight from a wide range of educators. Remember it is never too early to start talking about your academic interests – you never know what connections you might make! This year we are thrilled to offer FOUR (4) Graduate Student Travel Awards of $250 to the top graduate student abstracts from either category to assist you in attending the regional conference. Additionally the top graduate student presentation (from either category) as voted on by the regional conference attendees will be awarded a Travel Award of $500 to attend the IDEC Annual Conference in Chicago, March 2017. Please make sure to select the “graduate student” identifier when submitting your abstract. Only those identifying as “graduate student” on the abstract submissions will be eligible for the regional travel awards.
